    November 21, 2021 - 1 hour decant.
    Medium dark garnet color; plum, currant, violet nose. Classic cedar pencil palate, roast meat, tobacco, leather, cocoa and tons of darkblack fruit. Smoothly integrated with a huge tannic structure that should carry it for the long haul. Impressive effort. Score based upon current condition plus potential.

    November 1, 2021 - Sweet expansive aroma. Nearly sweet, savory, spicy cassis based taste balanced by perfectly restrained tart fruit acid with loamy mouthfeel. My only disagreement with others' notes: it seems ready to drink. I'm not sure that I would ask St. Peter to put aside too many cases of this given development to date.

    October 28, 2021 - I really liked this one for the money. It's what a good middle of the road Margaux should be. Really started singing after an hour of decanting. 2016 seems to have been a good year for most wines in the area. Still looking for berries that got wrecked. None found, yet. Beautiful, heavy perfume on the nose. Astringency from solid tannins that made it a good wine to pair with a thick NY strip steak and some sweet baby broccolini.
